Rosalind R. Levering, who was the first headmistress of the St. Paul's School for Girls in Brooklandville, died Friday of a heart attack in Camden, Maine, after being injured in an automobile accident a week earlier.
She was 84 and lived in the Ambassador Apartments in the winter and in Thomaston, Maine, in the summer.
Services for Mrs. Levering were being held today at University Baptist Church, North Charles Street and Greenway.
In 1966 when Mrs. Levering retired as headmistress, William Reed, then chairman of the board, said the school would always be grateful because she established "the unique quality of the school and one we hope it will never lose."
She became headmistress at St. Paul's when it opened in 1959 after serving on the faculty of the Bryn Mawr School for 30 years. An English teacher, she also had headed the middle school at Bryn Mawr.
She is survived by a son, Wilson K. Levering III of Westminster; three daughters, Tacy French of Thomaston, Linda Luste of Toronto and Jessie Fike of Somerset, Pa.; four grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
